In SAP Forms within the Automic Web Interface (AWI) 12.0, it is possible to select Variants from SAP Jobs in different Clients.  However, when using a different Client, the preview function is not working. Instead of displaying the variables and their respective values of the Variants, an empty page is displayed.

Investigation
  1. Create or edit an SAP Job with COPY_VARIANT from Client 100
  2. After selecting the Report (i.e. RSUSR002), select a different Client (i.e. Client 200)
  3. Search for a Variant (i.e. SCJ)
  4. Select Preview
Results

Actual:  
An empty page similar to the one below is displayed for the Variant.
